1st Day Back at Work

Well I can honestly say that I was hoping for the best when I returned to work today, but needless to say it was the WORST!! I was fine with leaving Tatum at the daycare, but when I got to the office the work situation was not great. In fact, it was not even good. I don't know which was worse....losing my territory or being backstabbed by someone that I called a friend.

I expected the territory deal, but not the lying and backstabbing from this person. I guess it just goes to show that you really can't trust anyone anymore. I can honestly say that I would have NEVER done the things that were done to me. I didn't ask for this person to defend me or stick up for me, but I did ask that this person not lie to me. I mean, is that too hard? I guess it is for some people. It just shows the true character of this person I guess.

Anyway, I have done my part and I am over it. I spent most of my day praying for strength to get through this and some way find a positive aspect of everything that happened. This is pretty hard considering all that I was faced with today, but I am trying. There were so many other things that happened, but I can not go into details. I will take it one day at a time and remember that this is out of my hands and in God's hands. I can not make people "pay" for what they did or didn't do, but God can and will as He sees fit. I just don't understand how people can be okay with being unethical in life. I guess I never will understand it and that is fine with me.

Please pray for me to have LOTS of strength and courage to face these things that I am going through with a good attitude. It will be hard, but I figure if I can give birth, then I can do this. I am WOMAN....hear me ROAR!! LOL

This reminds me of a story.....

There once was a sparrow who was flying through the sky and came upon very cold weather. His wings began to form ice on them and this finally took him down to the ground because of the weight of the ice. The sparrow realized quickly that his life was over and he was prepared to die. Just when he had given up all hope, along came a cow and pooped on the sparrow. Needless to say, the sparrow was very unhappy about this. Not only was he going to die, but he was going to be covered in cow poop and die. A minute or two later he realized that the cow's poop was warm and it was melting the ice. As he warmed up he could move about and was very happy. He was so happy he began to sing and churp very loudly. He was singing so loudly that a cat in the barn heard him that he came out to see what was going on. He saw the sparrow and pulled him out of the cow poop and ate him.

What is the moral of this story??

Not everyone that poops on you means you harm.

Not everyone that pulls you out of poop is looking out for your well being.

Those that sing the loudest shouldn't because it will catch up to them in the end.

Until next time.....

I'm already experiencing this at my office - it feels as though I'm the first person ever to have a baby in the office and that it is such an inconvenience for everyone else. It's really sad that there aren't more strict laws against this type of harrassment/treatment. I can't wait for my maternity leave to start so I can get out of this place for a while. Just make sure if you decide to quit your job, you stay for 30 days, otherwise they can charge you for all your time taken off and for other random things. Keep your head up!

They don't know a good thing (you) when it is right in front of their eyes! I am so angry with you and will be praying that one day they see "the light!"
